The Motherisk Nausea and Vomiting of Pregnancy (NVP) ForumMotherisk receives questions from around the world about morning sickness symptoms, effects, treatments and ways to cope. Those questions and answers are posted here for anyone to read, provided the reader acknowledges and accepts the proviso and disclaimer below.
I am trying to figure out when NVP goes beyond what is considered "normal". Is vomiting 4 times in a morning too much? My wife has only had nausea until today. At 4am she began to throw up every hour until 9am. now its on and off. She is 8 weeks pregnant now.
When it comes to NVP, it is hard to say what is "normal." Every woman experiences NVP symptoms differently. Typically, NVP occurs in the first trimester, weeks 8 to 12 often being the most difficult. There is safe and approved treatment available in Canada for NVP: Diclectin, containing vitamin B6 and doxylamine succinate. For more information on how to deal with NVP and optimum treatment, please aks your wife to call our NVP Helpline at 1-800-436-8477 or review previous Q and A's under Treatment in this Forum.
